1 x 50'

In the Arctic summer of 2001, a team of Irish sailors and adventurers sailed in a custom-built ice strengthened boat through the famous Northwest Passage, a journey that will take them from Greenland across the top of Arctic Canada and finally through the Bering Straits into the Pacific Ocean.

The documentary "Northwest passage" features a voyage through some of the wildest terrain on earth while telling the story of a journey that has fascinated mariners and explorers for centuries drawing many of them to their deaths. The film will also highlight the key roles played by a number of Irishmen both in the exploration of the Arctic and in the search for the most famous and mysterious expedition ever to venture North.
